Open CASCADE inside Intel, or ... Intel inside

Just finished the meeting with my Intel colleagues where we decided that Open CASCADE would be integrated into an internal application database for testing our software products. I am a program manager in the team that is developing new products – Intel Parallel Amplifier and Parallel Inspector, which will be part of the Intel Parallel Studio (www.intel.com/go/parallel). They are approaching public Beta program (feel free to sign up by the way!) and are currently in hands of our few Beta customers. Guess who is among those few ?

Why did we chose Open CASCADE software for app testing? Because it helps make Intel products better ! It already allowed us to find several bugs before we released first Beta, and we are still discovering more with it. Despite that it’s single-threaded today there are steps to multi-threading. I am also going to use the multi-threading framework prototype for testing it in parallel mode (mentioned on the forum in October).

I really enjoy situations like this – when you can combine interests of several parties. It’s good for Intel, it’s good for Open CASCADE, it’s good for me ;-). I love to be a ‘deal maker’, and you ?

Disclaimer: Whenever I talk about Intel, this represents my sole personal opinion, it does not reflect any official position of the company. That’s a policy. I had to say it. I did.
